A former Babestation model has spoken out after a devoted fan offered to leave her £20,000 ($25,000) in his will.
Thomas Weir, from Milton Keynes, said he wanted to leave some of his money to Laura Jones because he thought she was 'lovely'.
The 50-year-old had turned to the adult sex line when he was suffering badly with his health. After battling diabetes for some years, Thomas contracted an MRSA infection and had his lower right leg amputated.
Fearing he may not have long left, Thomas has now decided to leave a thank you for Laura.
When the model found out he had offered to leave her such a large sum of money, she said she thought it was a 'wind up'.
Speaking to the Sun about the surprise gesture, Laura said: "The Babestation guys contacted my boss because I worked for Playboy.
"I was completely shocked. It doesn't feel real. I've done that life... I have children now. It feels weird, it's the sort of thing that happens to other people but not me.
"I need to talk to him and remember his voice to say thank you and then 'really...are you sure'?
"I remember the name...but it's voices, so I need to remember his voice and what we chatted about.
"This is about six years ago."
Laura, from Bristol, said the whole thing still 'hasn't sunk in' and she just 'can't believe it' it has happened.
She said: "You read about it in the paper all the time but never expect it to be you. It must be like when you win the lottery and you're like 'really?'
"I'm not sure I want to take it off him. Does he need it? He doesn't sound very well, bless him.
"But I need to talk to him and have a catch up. It makes me feel really nice that he enjoyed talking to me as a person.
"As soon as I'll talk to him I'll remember him because we must have got on so well. I don't want him to be lonely."
And while some haven't been able to understand why he has made such a generous offer to a total stranger, Thomas, who is originally from Greenock in Scotland, said there was nothing sinister in it and that he was 'not a stalker or anything like that'.
He said: "I don't want to get in touch with her, that's not me. I think she'll spend the money wisely and she's such a lovely person, she is a loon - very funny.
"My nephews and nieces all live abroad and are doing very well. I have no children and there is no one else I would like to leave the money to."
